About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to queer movement & the norm (whatever the f*** that is); to witness, act, and engage in creative processes that manifest themselves in the present! ratchet bitches make the world go round, especially if they love social justice, humanity, equality, and love to love.

ABOUT ME

They call me crazy Randy for a reason: I love to go out, dance, connect with people on the dance floor, and allow the music to take over my energy. I hardly think I'm funny, but I go out of my way to make people feel cared about and appreciated.. I am more than just a dancer, and I'm passionate about neuroscience. I'm interested in collaborations between different artists: photographers, dancers, studio artists, actors, singers, DJs - in order to see what can happen when these fields cross paths. something explosive? something transformative? I'm not super fashionable, but I try. I'm there if you're crying, celebrating a relationship or holiday, etc. with a drink in hand (just kidding...). I'm easy to talk to about whatever, I can engage in some political conversations especially if our views contradict each other, I don't fight, I love. I'm all about accessibility and old-school videogames (i.e. Super Nintendo, Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda). If I don't know about something, I'm honest about it; ignorance is bliss, but I'm responsible for my ignorance. I'm a Latino at heart, which means so many things: good food, crazy music, sexual energy, a connection to family beyond belief, immigration, salsa, cumbia, bachata.

Interests

Right now I'm pretty wrapped up with this dance program in Berlin. I'm studying dance in the States and am working towards my Bachelor's of Arts in Dance (I graduate in 2014). I came to Berlin to get technique and I've developed a love/hate relationship with the city: there's a palpable energy, it's quiet, it roars, it takes over and I am finally coming to terms with the cold shoulder Berlin can have. I'm really interested in choreography and making dance works; I am recently falling in love with electronic music and the ways I can combine this genre with improvisation/urban dance. I am interested in site specific work (maybe when it's a bit warmer) and of improvising in places where my body can respond to the natural or static environment. I spend my time reading, listening to music, jamming all over the place (on the U-bahn, in the hostel I'm sitting in right now, when I'm walking). I like observing people and the natural choreography that already exists in our day-to-day lives - yesterday I saw this couple and the girl kissed the guy so quickly, almost like if she were whispering the kiss - fast, hidden, passionate. The people I have met thus far in Europe are beyond engaging and the experiences I have encountered are keeping me here - keeping me poor, but sexy.
